How to Start a Blog in 2023

It has been a while since I have given some Blogging Tips on my blog, so I thought it was time to bring another one of my trusted Blogging Tips back on the blog!  I have thought of posting this topic for a while however, with my new blog schedule, I have not been able to fit it into the schedule till now. 

Also, I don’t think I’ve announced this on the blog before- yes, I have a new blog schedule.  I will no longer be posting every week but rather on a bi-weekly basis.  This does affect my views, etc, however, I’m much more content with this new schedule and not always stressed about “this week’s blog post”.  This new schedule also provides me with a better work-life balance (or rather a blog-life balance). 

Anyway, back to the post!  So, as mentioned, I wanted to bring another Blogging Tip your way.  Many people have asked me for tips on how to start a blog, so I thought to put together a blog post for those who were interested.  Without further ado, check out my tips on How to Start a Blog in 2023 below.

Choose a Niche for your Blog

Before starting a blog, think of what topic you would like to write about in the blog.  Make sure it’s a broad yet targeted topic that you can at least write 50 posts about on the blog.  Once you have your broad topic such as fashion, travel, etc, then narrow it down.  For example, if you want to write about fashion then think about writing about budget-friendly fashion, fashion over 40, corporate fashion, etc.  This narrowing down of a topic is called the niche of your blog.

Having a narrowed-down topic for your blog allows you to have a targeted readership.  It also guarantees that those same readers return to your blog each time you post since the blog is about something they are interested in.  I have a more detailed post about picking a niche on this blog:  Click here to check it out.

Come up with a Blog Name

After picking a niche for the blog, the next step is to come up with a name for your blog.  Choosing a name can be so daunting and nerve-wrecking.  Most people struggle with choosing a name for their name.  The best and simplest way to choose a name for your blog is to come up with a name that you know you can grow with over time.  For instance, the name of my blog- Komal Means Delicate – is a fun take on the meaning of my name.  I knew that I could grow with my blog if I kept the name of my blog closer to me as a person.  This way if I want to write about fashion or travel, I have the option to do so as a Lifestyle Blogger

Choosing a blog name is essential. So, remember to come up with a name that can grow with you over time and through many chapters of life.  If you’re stuck, there are websites out there that can generate a blog name for you.  This way, you have the creative minds of a computer helping you come up with a name instead of forcing yourself to come up with one.

Pick a Hosting Site & Personalize

This tip may come as no surprise- to create your blog site!  To create your blog site, you need a hosting platform.  There are many website and blog hosting platforms out there such as Squarespace, WordPress, GoDaddy, etc.  Each hosting platform has its own set of pros and cons.  Learn more about each hosting platform and what it has to offer and chose the one that best fits your needs. Once you have picked a hosting platform, make sure to personalize it to your blog style.

For instance, I choose WordPress because I needed a platform that offered many themes, monetization, and growing my platform.  WordPress also offered a lot more as a blog platform, so I ultimately went with it.  Not only crossed all my needs for a blogging website but offered some extra perks as well.

Make Accompanying Social Media Accounts

Most people don’t think of this but if you want to grow your blog, you must advertise it on other platforms.  The best way to advertise your blog and the blog posts on it is to make a couple of accompanying social media pages.  There are a lot of social media sites out there and many would recommend one over the other.  The best option is to stick to one-two social media platform and strictly promote your blog on those.

For instance, if you look at this blog page, I have Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, Instagram, and Pinterest all accompanying this blog.  However, I only focus on my Instagram and Pinterest pages to drive traffic to this blog.  Those two platforms have been the most successful in bringing in new and old readers to my blog.  Thus, pick the two social media platforms that give you the most success and focus on those to help you drive traffic to your blog.

Write Engaging Content for your Readers

Last but not least, this should go without saying – make sure to write some engaging content for your readers.  Make sure the content that you write sticks with your blog niche, and you can grow with it over time.  Also, make sure that the content is engaging.  You want your readers to comment, question, interact, etc on your post.  So having an engaging post allows your comment section to also be more engaging and interactive.  This also allows for more traffic to your blog which is a plus.

Anyway, those are my tips for how to start a blog in 2023!  Which one of these tips is the most helpful to a new blogger?  Let me know in the comments below!

Much Love,
